In an interview with Time magazine, McCain said Obama made a good impression on GOP Senators at a dinner last year because in his view, the president was simply smarter than they were.
Everyone is familiar with Senator Joseph McCarthy (R-Wis.). In the 1950s, McCarthy made a cottage industry of searching out and finding hidden communists throughout the federal government. In the post-WWII era, communism was a real threat. McCarthy, however, was a charlatan.
McCarthy’s inquisition began on Feb. 9, 1950 with a speech to the Republican Women’s Club of Wheeling, W.V. What McCarthy said wasn’t recorded, but, according to “The Politics of Fear” by Robert Griffith, the senator waved a piece of paper in his hand and proclaimed, “I have here in my hand a list of 205 names that were made known to the Secretary of State as being members of the Communist Party and who nevertheless are still working and shaping policy in the State Department.”
“Play offense. Go after your opponent. Your opponent’s going after you, you go after your opponent. The best defense is a good offense.”
Words out of the mouth of RINO Senator John McCain…good words but they make one wonder which side he’s addressing this to…as if we didn’t know.
And so we have liberals to the left of us…RINOS NOT quite to the left but so NOT to the right of us…and caught in the middle is we Conservatives and TEA Partiers. And the prize all sides want is the Senate…the left wants to keep it, the RINOS will go whichever way the wind blows, and we in the middle know that to retake the Senate as long as we keep the House means Barack HUSSEIN Obama is basically rendered politically impotent from doing any more harm to our beloved America.
How far we have fallen when the only solution to Obama’s out of control spending is to put the burden upon the backs of those who risk their lives every day to keep us safe and free at home.
The last time Congress adopted a budget was in 2009, but last week in step one, the Republican controlled House passed the Ryan/Murray Bi-Partisan Budget Bill NOT because it was a good bill…in fact it barely puts a dent in the deficits predicted to lessen in the short term but grow much larger in the long term…but because they feared yet another government shutdown and its negative ramifications as we head into the 2014 mid-term election year. And it’s so sad that everything the House now does is done out of fear instead of doing what’s right, and it’s usually ‘We the People’ who end up on the losing end when all is said and done.
Bullying…the use of force, threat, or coercion to abuse, intimidate, or aggressively impose domination over others. Bullying…what better word is there to describe the growing number of RINOs in the House.
And while lately the issue and consequences of bullying in general has been all over the news…as in bullies in our schools, bullies on the playground, bullies in sports…sadly, the bullies within the ranks of the Republican party…certain long-term way past time to leave RINO bullies… seem to be dominating the headlines. These political bullies…as in the likes of John McCain and Lindsey Graham to name but two…held Republican lawmakers in both chambers hostage with their made-up doomsday scenarios about defaulting as they sold their party…and ‘We the People’…out to the Obama political machine.
“Take down Ted Cruz, at his home,” tweeted an individual identified on Twitter as Troy Gilmore Jr., who also posted Cruz’s home address in Houston. “What goes around comes around CRUZ!!”
“Congress must do its job and raise the debt limit to pay the bills we have incurred and avoid default,” White House mouthpiece Jay Carney bloviated a few days ago.
And Jimmy Carter…now the second worst president in US history…called NOT raising the debt ceiling like Obama wants a “threat to the integrity of this government….a short-term deal to avoid default would be better than nothing,” adding but even that “just means you’ll have another crisis.”
This from the man who derailed the American economy before Ronald Reagan came in to clean up his mess.
Earlier Friday, the Senate voted to invoke cloture on a bill that would fund the government while defunding Obamacare. Over half of the Republicans in the Senate voted with Harry Reid to stop debate, effectively voting to fund the massive law.
Sure, they voted against the bill later, but when they had a real chance to stop it, they refused.
An aide to Senator McCain told GQ’s Jason Zengerle that John McCain f@#$%^g hates Ted Cruz. He claims McCain hates his style. Since Ted Cruz was elected, he has ruffled the feathers of many a liberal and McCain is no exception, although it is odd to be so forthcoming about it.
Of course the feeling is mutual, however Cruz is slightly more diplomatic about it. “I don’t know a conservative who didn’t feel embarrassed voting in 2006 or 2008. I think the Republican Party lost its way. We didn’t stand for the principles we’re supposed to believe in.”
Do you dislike terrorists? Do you hate the propaganda they put out? Then why are you paying for it? You are paying for academic reports on how wonderful the Syrian rebels are and how those nasty beheadings are nothing more than childish pranks. You also pay for lobbyists in DC, trying to convince our lawmakers to support them?
Elizabeth O’Bagy, who was paid by the British and US government to provide propaganda favorable to the Islamists fighting in Syria, has apparently committed perjury in the trial of American Eric Harroun, who was accused of fighting alongside al-Nusra in Syria., an Al Qaeda linked group. O’Bagy submitted an affidavit that his group was not Islamist.Until recently, their web site included a picture of the US Capitol in flames.
